Spirit of Life and Love,
Shaken by sorrow
We wonder why
We wonder how
Humans can find it within themselves
To destroy life
That exists also within them.
Together we grieve the injustice
Of lives cut short by hate
Of survivors touched by terror
And we stand firm in life
Knowing that only love can ease our grief
Even as it is our love of one another
That causes us to grieve such loss.
May we mourn as a community
That loves life,
For we know that life and love must continue.
May it be so, Blessed Be
